    Question #import "MSVBVM60.DLL" error

    I only have one statement "#import "MSVBVM60.DLL" no_namespace" in my VC6. 0 code. when I compile it, I got error message:

    d:\sampl\debug\msvbvm60.tlh(577) : error C2059: syntax error : '('

    If I add include file<afxwin.h>

    I will have additional error message:
    d:\sample\debug\msvbvm60.tlh(451) : error C2059: syntax error : '('

    why it has error in msvbvm60.tlh?

    Anyone know the reason for this error?

    Thanks.

    Hi,

    the syntax error occurs in the tlh-file at the function declaration
    VARIANT_BOOL __stdcall EOF(
    short FileNumber );

    Well, EOF is a #define in one or more standard C include files - the most important is stdio.h where it is defined as #define EOF (-1)

    My first thought was to ommit the no_namespace-attribute but it doesn't work. But I have two other solutions:

    1. Use the rename-attribute - for example:
    #import "MSVBVM60.DLL" rename("EOF","VBAEOF") rename("RGB","VBARGB")

    or

    2. undefine the EOF/RGB constant before the import and define it again after the import statement:
    #undef EOF
    #import ...
    #define EOF (-1)

    I definitively suggest option 1.

    I agree, option 1 is definitely better.
